The View co-host Joy Behar gave an underhanded but illuminating response on Monday to her pro-life co-host Meghan McCain’s statement regarding President Biden, Catholicism, and abortion, implying that McCain’s pro-life views are inconsistent, while her own pro-abortion views are consistent. However, in doing so, she exposed the truth that abortion is murder and should be legally classified as such.
“It’s like saying, ‘Personally I’m opposed to murder but if you want to murder a little bit it’s fine because it’s not my problem,” said McCain of Biden and his “personally pro-life” position on abortion. “[…] And he’s going to have to talk to his Creator when the time comes, as we all do, and reconcile his politics with his personal faith.” She also stated that abortion is murder, and therefore is the “government funding the killing of the unborn.”
Behar fired back, not mentioning McCain by name, but seemingly targeting her.
“Some people believe that the death penalty is also government-sanctioned murder and a lot of people who believe in the death penalty do not believe in abortion, so there’s a rather inconsistent thing right there,” she said. “I personally am pro-choice and under certain circumstances, I believe in the death penalty, so I am very consistent.”
While other rebuttals to Behar’s claims have been made by pro-lifers who support the use of the death penalty for convicted criminals, Behar’s claims of her own consistency — her support for both abortion and the death penalty — is an acknowledgement that, ultimately, she knows both of these actions end the lives of human beings.

Based on this statement, Behar is “consistently” in favor of killing people sometimes. It seems to make no difference to her whether the government gives the lethal injection (or suction, or literal dismemberment) to a preborn child or a convicted serial killer.
While many who oppose abortion also oppose the death penalty for criminals, those who support the death penalty would not support it for those who are innocent. In contrast, those who support abortion always support it for innocent preborn children.
